Bus services to resume today

BUS services Fiji-wide resume this morning except in areas where roads have been washed out or are unsafe for travel.

The announcement was made by Fiji Bus Operators Association (FBOA) general secretary, Rohit Latchan who urged bus drivers not to drive in flooded roads as it posed a threat to drivers and passengers.

Mr Latchan said bus operators aimed to restore all bus services by today to help members of the travelling public return to normalcy.

“However, any decision to operate a service will consider the safety of passengers and drivers as a priority at all times,” he said.

The bus services in the country were halted yesterday following the threat posed by Severe Tropical Cyclone Keni.
